Borg vs. McEnroe — U.S. Trailer


added: Thu, Mar 8th '18

NEON, the U.S. film distributor behind Margot Robbie's ice skating movie "I, Tonya," will release another historical sports drama next month. And though it's not about a sensational Olympic scandal, the film is, however, depicting a real-life explosive rivalry between two premier athletes who -- like Harding and Kerrigan -- couldn't be more different from each other.

Check out the new U.S. trailer for "Borg vs. McEnroe," an intense sports film chronicling the events that led up to the 1980 Wimbledon Championships (which is widely considered as one of the greatest Wimbledon finals in tennis history) between New York hotshot John McEnroe and Swedish champion Bjorn Borg (portrayed here by American actor Shia LaBeouf and Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason).

Because McEnroe was known for lashing out at referees and Borg would never lose control of his emotions on or off the court, the press dubbed them "Fire and Ice." And you get a good sense of that contrast in the new preview, which shows LaBeouf reenacting many of McEnroe's infamous outbursts, including the time he famously screamed "you cannot be serious!"

Directed by Danish filmmaker Janus Metz (Armadillo, HBO's True Detective) and co-starring Stellan Skarsgard (Good Will Hunting, Thor) as Borg's famed tennis coach Lennart Bergelin, "Borg vs McEnroe" will make its Stateside debut next month, hitting theaters and VOD on April 13th.

Borg vs McEnroe is a film about one of the world's greatest icons Bjorn Borg and his biggest rival, the young and talented John McEnroe and their legendary duel during the 1980's Wimbledon tournament. It's a story about two men that became legends and the price they had to pay.
